The Bold and the Beautiful may just be bringing in the mother of Ivy Forrester (Ashleigh Brewer) to the canvas, if speculation is correct.

According to Soap Opera Digest, the CBS soap and international hit series, is looking to cast a woman 50-60 years old, who must be Australian.

The casting call is for the character known as “Claire”, and is expected to be filled shortly, and to tape within a few weeks.  Brewer herself mentioned in an interview with SOD, that Ivy’s mother had somewhat of a fear of flying, so if the character were ever to appear she would have to find another way to get to California!

So, who would you suggest for the role of “Claire”?  Put your casting director hats on and give us your best suggestion!

Ivy’s mom ***IS*** named Claire – or at least, John called her that in a conversation with Eric. Of course, B&B conveniently forgot that Taylor’s surname was originally Ashford when they decided to change it to Hamilton, and that Jessica Forrester’s mom was originally said to be Hannah until Barbara Crampton came on as Maggie. Maybe they are getting it right this time?

Yes—she was played by Maitland Ward and her love interest was Dylan played by Dylan Neal.

Jessica is Ivy’s half sister, played by Maitland Ward on the show from 1994-1996. That was the first time John Forrester was ever mentioned. John and his wife were going through a rough patch in their marriage, so John sent his daughter, Jessica, to stay with her uncle Eric and aunt Stephanie in L.A. But they just sent her – they didn’t bother to call or anything. So Jessica showed up at the Forrester mansion and was shocked to find that Stephanie had no idea she was coming, or that Eric and Stephanie were divorced. (Eric was married to Sheila… Read more »

Connie Nielsen is 50 & Danish. She had short run last year on THE GOOD WIFE as Peter Florrick’s mistress. Don’t know if she could do an Australian accent. But, she definitely has a cosmopolitan allure & can speak 8 languages.

Three fine actresses from the Australian primetime soap, “A Place To Call Home” come to mind. First, there is lead Marta Dusseldorp (Sarah Adams) who possesses that tall, cool blonde, regal vibe…she is quite reminiscent of OLTL’s Jessica Tuck….There is also a set of striking brunettes: the vivacious Sara Wiseman who plays (Aunt) Carolyn Bligh and Jenni Baird who portrays the icy villainess (Aunt) Regina Standish. If the show is looking for a real battleaxe, there is also Noni Hazelhurst, who fills a killer role far older than her years as matriarch Elizabeth Bligh, but is also absolutely superb.

Kim Delaney’s Lifetime Movie ‘Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’ Drops Trailer

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Then let us know, which AMC characters do you want to see back and on the primetime series, Pine Valley?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
